The Role of Program        Design, Implementation, and Evaluation in Evidence-Based                                         2
Real World Community Supervision
The authors describe the challenges and issues that should be addressed when trying to bring research to the real world of community
supervision faced by probation officers and evaluate their efforts to overcome these challenges in their Strategic Training Initiative
in Community Supervision (STICS) implementation.
Guy Bourgon, James Bonta, Tanya Rugge, Terri-Lynne Scott, Annie K. Yessine
The Creation and Validation of the Ohio Risk Assessment System                     (ORAS)                                16
The Ohio Risk Assessment System (ORAS) is a statewide assessment system that specifically provides risk assessment instruments
at pretrial, community supervision, prison intake, and community reentry. Validation results reveal that all assessment instruments
can significantly distinguish between risk levels.
Edward J. Latessa, Richard Lemke, Matthew Makarios, Paula Smith, Christopher T. Lowenkamp
The Role of Probation and Parole Officers in the Collaborative Response to Sex Offenders                                 23
In June 2007, the American Probation and Parole Association was awarded a cooperative agreement from the National Institute of
Corrections to develop a curriculum for training community corrections professionals on how to deal with low-level/low-risk sex
offenders from a collaborative framework. The authors provide an introduction to the collaborative response to sex offenders, with
an emphasis on the role of probation and parole officials.
Brian K. Payne, Matthew DeMichele
Pretrial Diversion: The Overlooked Pretrial Services Evidence-Based Practice                                             28
Pretrial Diversion (PTD) was not implemented in the federal judiciary under its current form until passage of the Pretrial Services
Act of 1982. Since then, this program has largely failed to gain and maintain momentum. The authors attempt to offer evidence of
the worth of an often overlooked program.
Joseph M. Zlatic, Donna C. Wilkerson, Shannon M. McAllister
National Surveys of State Paroling Authorities: Models of Service Delivery                                               34
The authors focus on the differences among state paroling authorities in structure and standard operating procedures to present a na-
tional snapshot of parole in the U.S. Results suggest that fewer states have structural similarities than have operational similarities.
Joel M. Caplan, Susan C. Kinnevy
Huikahi Restorative Circles: A Public Health Approach for Reentry Planning                                               43
The Huikahi Restorative Circle is a group process for reentry planning which involves the incarcerated individual, family and
friends, and at least one prison representative. In addition to the need for reconciliation, the circles address such basic needs as de-
veloping and maintaining a support system, locating and maintaining housing, and staying clean and sober, which have been linked
to reduced recidivism.
